The historic Stables at Welbeloond, were originally constructed in 1785, more than 230 years ago. In keeping with the Mellish family philosophy, the Manor House and other farm buildings have all been lovingly restored to retain their original character. The original foundations and architectural design remain, in newly refurbished country cottages that offer travellers a comfortable and memorable stay – the comforts of modernity with the charm of yesteryear.
Make the most of your stay at The Stables by enjoying features, such as the underfloor heating – the ultimate pleasure, particularly on cool evenings.
What makes The Stables one of the best guest houses in Durbanville?

Entertainment & relaxation at your cottage: As a guest at The Stables, you can enjoy a full range of satellite television at no extra cost. You also have braai/barbeque facilities at your disposal for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a view.
Accessibility: Considering that Welbeloond is a mere 30 minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, you’ll have easy access to everything from the Ratanga Junction amusement park, to local markets and Bloubergstrand (approximately 15 minutes away). However, you’ll find that Welbeloond is secluded enough to offer you a breakaway and country experience for the duration of your stay, if you prefer it.
Facilities: “The Stables” is fully furnished, self-catering accommodation with under-floor heating and every utensil and comfort you will need. For more information, view the specific inclusions listed in our Old Bull Pen information page, as both cottages are equipped with the same amenities.
